Team Birkie is now accepting applications for the 2022-23 training year as well as for their summer collegiate training programs. Applications will be due by end of day April 10 and decisions will be made by April 15.
Based in the Twin Cities, Team Birkie trains and lives throughout the Midwest. We are excited to be hosting multiple World Cup races in our region in 2024, with events at both Theodore Wirth Park in Minneapolis and at the Birkie Trailhead in Cable, WI. We want to help athletes reach the podium at the World Cup, World Championship, and the Olympics. The Twin Cities offer endless opportunities for career advancement, education, and entertainment. Our goal is to develop balanced athletes who can put in the time to be successful in the most challenging sport in the world. The training opportunities are world class. Travel is convenient with an international airport within 20 minutes of your door and multiple Super Tour events within driving distance. We also have 3 ski areas with reliable 5K+ of snowmaking loops from Dec. 1-March 15th.
